The huge problem in Vancouver right now involves heroin addicts committing crimes to support their bad habits. The “free heroin for addicts” program is attempting to stop addicts from committing said crimes. Crime rate has risen due to the actions of these addicts. Which results to a constant struggle through their day to day lives. Their daily activities such as jobs, interactions, and relationships are hard to maintain because of their poor addiction habits. A user always goes to great lengths to obtain the drug. The most common of crimes committed begins with breaking and entering. There are no limits to what these addicts will do to retrieve this drug, all to feed their addiction. The problem with the program comes from the lack of support to addicts when off the drug. This program is only intended to difflate rising crime rates. By providing the drug, these addicts want, the likelier they are to leave the streets. Which in turn will prevent them from committing minor street crimes,whilst also keeping them away from the hospitals. Very uneeded issues that the hospitals have to deal with; people that want to use bad drugs or non sanatised needles or users unable to afford hospital bills. Programs giving people free heroin in the cleanest way possible. This will in turn fix the city but not the addiction that these people face.
